A History of Successful Philanthropy!
What began in 2008 as a peanut butter and jelly brigade to feed the hungry in community shelters, has blossomed into a variety of service projects which support the Chicagoland area.
S.T.A.T, volunteers have:
- Made over 5,000 lunches for local shelters.
- Volunteered at the Chicago Food Depository to prepare care packages for those in need.
- Collaborated with Campus Ministry in a "Holiday Harvest" food drive which collected non-perishable items for Catholic Charities.
- Grown produce to donate to community shelters.
- April 2015 volunteers will once again "take over" the intersection at 95th and Cicero to help raise funds for Misericordia Heart of Mercy.
To become involved as a S.T.A.T member, recommend other causes that may be aided by our services or to make a donation please contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at email@example.com or 773-298-3316.
